Composr 10 beta2 released

Composr 10 beta2 released

11th February 2016, 11:47 pm

10 beta2 released. Read the full article for more information, and upgrade information.

Note that the normal upgrade process can't upgrade to from ocPortal. For that, the omni-upgrader has been updated on our main announcement:
Upgrading from ocPortal v8/v9 to Composr v10 - Composr

The Composr patch release upgrade process has not yet been tested, so a fresh install is safest, but bug reports are welcome on the tracker:
My View - Composr CMS feature tracker
● does composr have push notification like javascript driven forums like nodebb? eg users are notified with an onscreen icon/sound and immediately see new forums posts without refreshing the page

● has designing a custom theme been simplified from ocportal 9?
v9 had configurable notifications for a range of content, but the way you get notified has been improved in v10. Not sure if Push notifications, but live notifications in the header. The Mobile SDK may do push notifications, as may the Tapatalk addon. Honestly not too sure,

Custom themes weren't particularly difficult in v9 if you had the time and inclination, not sure if it's easier in v10 but things have been improved across the board. I suggest you download the Beta and that may answer your questions more conclusively than I can.
When using the composer upgrade form, you cannot enter version 10. Only single digits are able to be input in the first text box. Is a fresh install from beta1 to beta2 recommended, or can a patch file be generated?

Chris informed me that although the patch hasn't been tested and a fresh install is safest, there's basically supposed to be a patch available, but there's a bug in this upgrade form he will fix when he can. Not only can you only enter one number for the major version, but the form appends a 1 at the end of what you type in.
How would I go about upgrading to Composer 10 from ocPortal 9.0.22?
My upgrade notification on my website's admin page just has a link to Composer's home page.
Read the first post in this thread, it has a link to the upgrade process. Best is a fresh install. Being this is a beta release, I would't use it on a production site yet. According to the time line (subject to change), I think the first stable release is due out in April (I can't find the timeline right now, so someone correct me if I'm wrong).
